Pale and Oh So Interesting… Part 1

I’m more than a little bit excited about this wedding. With a modern Bride totally rocking her very stylish and grown up look, it’s a total fashion fest. That, plus a pale but pretty palette and some out of this world photography by the wonderful Cara and Nye at Lillian and Leonard, and you’re all going to love it too.

We are Naomi and Arjen and our wedding was on March 27th 2010 at Crear, near Kilberry in Argyll.

Luscious Liberty

My Dress was by a designer called Jesus del Pozo bought from Liberty in London. It was only the second place I went to try on dresses and I literally could have bought every single one but when I tried this one on I knew it was the one. I wanted something swooshy and not too formal (I never wear long dresses). It was quite Grecian and incredibly comfortable – which was important to me. It was also something that I knew Arjen would love (which he did).

Keeping it Simple

I had earrings from The Earring Boutique online (cheap but beautiful). No other jewellery (my engagement and wedding rings were enough). I had bought a comb to go in my hair but on the day decided on a few Lilly of the valley and roses from my bouquet instead.

I wanted to look like me but better (not a different person, wanted my husband to recognise me)!
My hair was in a side bun and was done by Vicki from Heaven (a local hairdresser in Lochgilphead) she came to the venue and was amazing. She did exactly what I wanted.

I did my own make up and discovered the wonder of mineral makeup (bare minerals) I bought everything else from SpaceNK, spent a great afternoon having a makeover to try everything out!

Salvatore Shoes

Very high, dusky rose in colour with metallic spiky heels from Salvatore Ferragamo. They were hand made and had petals on the back of the heels. I wanted shoes I could wear again so cream was out. I wear them all the time now with jeans.

Luschious Lily of the Valley

The bouquets and button holes were all different. My bouquet was lilly of the valley which looked and smelled beautiful.

Chic and Stylish in Navy

We didn’t have a colour scheme but I wanted the bridesmaids to have something they could wear again. We got navy blue knee length dresses from LK Bennett and I know they have all worn them since. They wore their own shoes (from flats to 5 inch heels).

A Stylish Groom

He wore a Hugo Boss suit and a Liberty print shirt – he doesn’t like ties so he didn’t wear one. He didn’t look at me as I walked down the aisle because someone told him it is not the done thing but he teared up when I got to him and so did I – so I think that was a good reaction! Saying our vows it felt like we were the only people in the room and was quite a surreal experience but an amazing one.

The Best Men wore their own suits and looked fantastic in them.

Seriously? How Bea.Utiful is this Bride? Super stylish and with a Groom to match!

I could literally cry tomorrows post is so good, so beautiful, so clean. The decor, the details, the images. Pure Brilliant white and lots of love, you will not be disappointed.

Yours Truly,

  4. omg how romantic and wild the venue looks. I wish I looked that stunning using mineral make up! The hair is so pretty and I love how Lillian just decided to have the flowers in her hair instead of the comb I wish I could be that laid back on the day. Those shoes are gorgeous the colour and the detailing are so unusual. It’s great how everything is not all matching but goes together so well xxx

  5. Oh I love Lillian and Leonard photography! It’s just so beautiful. We were looking at having them but they were just a wee bit too expensive. Their blog is brilliant, they photograph some of the most amazing weddings.

    Helps also that the bride is totally stunning!

  9. I am loving all the gorgeous Scottish brides being featured – and this wedding looks to be even more beautiful than those who have gone before. I love how she just decided to put flowers in her hair on the morning of the wedding 🙂 xxx

  10. Is it wrong that I just dribbled a little on my keyboard over those shoes? Woweee! In quite a geek like state of excitement I clicked through to the Salvatore Ferragamo website. Must.stop.looking.
    Also the bride looks like someone famous and I cant remember who….!
    Cant wait for Part 2! xx

  11. Hi

    Beautiful wedding btw.

    The earrings you wore, what were they called, my friend is getting married and saw those in a magazine but The Earring Boutique doesn’t exist anymore and we are trying to get hold of a pair, If we can find out what they are called the search will be easier.

    Many thanks
